A few little jottings from my Journal of Kept Words:

Kelle Hampton, on a visit to relatives:

 . . . and slept five to a bed last night, with bodies of cousins overlapped like a nice lattice crust.

Chris, on a Senior Moment:
That’s what happens when your mind gets scattered.   (small
pause)   Scattered’s not so bad---it’s the covered and
smothered that gets you.     
I’d tell you to go to Hell, but I work there, and I don’t
want to see you every day.   

A character in CROSS, by  James Patterson

The sweetest joy, the wildest woe is love. What the
world really needs is more love and less paperwork.  
Pearl Bailey    
The Meaning of Life is to find your gift; the purpose of
Life is to give it away. 
Joy J. Golliver

Me---I spend a lot of time pickin’ flowers up on
Choctaw Ridge
Ode to Billy Joe---Bobbie Gentry   

Cary Tennis, on Blogging:
We are all pen pals.
We are all prisoners. We are all doing time. We are
all tapping on the walls late at night waiting for
answers from distant cells.
And to all my fellow inmates of this lovely, bright,
multi-windowed place:  

Happy Weekend!

Wonderful! I just found one today in Roy Blount, Jr's new book Alpha Better Soup:
“The sight of a fly on a beautiful deviled egg encapsulates so much of the human condition: goody cut with dammit.”
